Meet Rachael Burks – Empress of Rad Skiing & HUGE friend of the folks in Anaconda.

Rachael is not only an incredibly fun person and skier, she is an advocate for inspiring girls of all ages to get out there and follow their dreams.

I’ve learned that I really like being able to help others when I’m on a shoot. I like to inspire as a female, but also bring out the goofiness in other women.
